I had heard of people who became bonded as friends via the internet. Sometimes, even fall in love and get married. But, last July when I received a letter from a second cousin in Sweden , I had no idea that within three months, my cousin Asta's eldest son, Bo, ("Lion Bo") and I would be bonded, forever. (I think) His address included his email address, so I immediately replied via email. My daughter and I had recently visited his mom, Asta, (her grandmother,  Mathilda was my dad's oldest sister). On that visit, Asta repeated many times, "It is too bad that Bo isn't here."

Jag heter Florence Benson Pendergrast. Smeknamn kan vara "Flo" eller "Flossie. " Jag är släkt till Bo Sigeback. Kanske du har hört talas om honom.
Min far som var bror till Mathilda, mormorsmor till Bo, föddes i Blekinge och kom till USA 1910. Han gifte sig 1920 med min tyska mor, Margaret. Faktiskt, hennes mor och far föddes i Tyskland. Jag lärde mig svenska när jag var på folkhögskolan i Hjo, 1981-2. Jag älskar svenska språket.
